>> a soggy drive through the streets today. flooding you see here at the shore as a result of the tides and high winds. bringing in water from the ocean as the storm slowly creeping its way causing concern over large portion of the area. not just the shore. first alert issues tonight through wednesday and maybe i don't understand. we told you about this storm a week a week a week ago. it will be moving slowly. it should cause localized flooding, gusty winds. and wintry mix to the north and west. the rain approaches later on this evening, but most of it will occur after midnight. and then you start getting the coastal flooding toward day break and a wintry mix north and west. and heavy rain during the morning and midday hours. rain continues during the rest
4:47 pm
of the day. now you can see why we have that wintry mix. it's only 29 in allentown, 30 in reading, 30 trenton. so even though the temperatures may rise tonight, may not rise enough and the ground is cold, so could be some freezing rain or sleet. only upper 30s farther to the south. there is the storm developing well offshore. and then it redevelops near the authori north carolina coast. and look at the winds converging at the jersey shore. when the winds converge, air goes up and it creates heavy precipitation and brings the big w5i6 waves in. the colder air comes in, that cuts off the rain, but then you have the threat of some snow. so winter storm warning for the poconos tuesday and into wednesday this morning. winter weather advisory later tonight and into tomorrow morning for the lehigh valley and berks county, those areas
4:48 pm
may not get above freezing in timing. we have coastal flood warnings for especially tom morning's high tied. moderate floodings could be worse than what they saw this morning. and now a general flood watch tuesday. plus a high wind advisory. there is the latest radar. no longer having snow in the inland areas. future cast not showing much during the evening hours. but then it really explodes overnight and it may again go into enough cold air, sometimes computer models don't handle too ha t well. so could be icing, but it won't be snow. the atmosphere will warm up and there is that nasty weather. how much rain? one computer model shows us an inch and a half to 2 inches by afternoon, up to about 2 total by the end of the storm.
4:49 pm
and that could be enough for some localized flooding. some computer models give us more rain, some less. rain mainly late tonight. wintry mix north and west as temperatures are near freezing there. they rise a little bit toward day break and then get up into the 40s in parts of the area at least during the day tomorrow. some of that rain will be on the heavy side and that coastal flooding may be the most significant problem of the day tomorrow. then colder air comes in and we get the possibility of snow showers north and west, maybe even down to the philadelphia area. and way below average temperatures all week. windy all week. and we barely start to warm up over the weekend. big day for mo'ne davis. >> she was presented with the first ever sports kid of the year award. mo'ne was joined by michael nutter, michael carter williams,
